The paradox between risk and reward

We naturally fear loss more than we desire a potential gain. That fear of change keeps us where we are. That is also why most people stay in the same job or industry until they get fired or retire.

The paradox is that most people assume staying in the same place will be less risky. In reality, the opposite is true. The longer you stay in the same place, the more you're at risk of a loss. Unless we get comfortable with change, we can't choose a life that makes us happy.
